Welcome to Day 2 of my Original 30-Day Workout Challenge.
I still can’t believe that it’s a brand new year! The clock, and my calendar tell me that time passed the same as it has in years past, but it felt like we went into super speed.
Today’s workout is a 20 minute interval workout. I modified one of the workouts I did with my boot camp class. I interspersed cardio bursts with max repetitions. The interval breakdown is 30 seconds cardio, 50 seconds max reps.
This workout is broken into three sections: lower body, core, and arms. You work your entire body, and burn fat at the same time.
I chose to jump rope, but high knees, jumping jacks, or cardio of choice (anyone up for more froggers?!?) can be substituted.
When I filmed this workout I followed it up with a run on the treadmill. I definitely surpassed my goal of a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise per day today.
Jesse and I have had house guests, and we threw a New Year’s Eve party so we haven’t had a chance to film any new workouts. I decided that it was a great time to go through my Original 30-Day Workout Challenge. I will still be filming new workouts along the way, and posting them, but the weekly workout schedule has been updated with the 30-Day Challenge exercises. The challenge is to get in at least 15-Minutes of exercise per day.
Yesterday I got in a walk, but I didn’t get in the workout of the day, so I am going to stack Day 1 and Day 2 today. I will also be doing the stretch video from yesterday daily throughout this month. Hopefully I can show you all some progress with my splits. Right now I don’t even think they can be called splits because my flexibility has regressed so much!
Check in here or on facebook, twitter, and instagram to let me know if you got in your #15minutesperday of exercise or more!
